Fight Back Against Employer Mistreatment

You spend the majority of your waking hours at work. You shouldn't have to tolerate an environment that's fraught with harassment and workplace discrimination. When an employer or coworker mistreats you based on your sex, your national origin, or any other aspect protected under law, you have the right to pursue justice. An employment law attorney can help you do so.

Discrimination in the workplace isn't always obvious. It often goes unnoticed by appearing in subtle forms like questioning the judgment of a female employee or intentionally not considering certain employees for promotions. If you feel that you may have been discriminated against at work, it can help to seek the professional opinion of an employment law attorney.

Some forms of discrimination, however, are perfectly clear. It's not hard to know when you've been unfairly terminated. Too often, we represent clients who have been fired for filing a workers' compensation claim or reporting an instance of fraud. These retaliatory discharges aren't just wrong; they're illegal. Tell us if you've been wrongfully fired. We're ready to stand up for you.
